Can you fake to third and throw to second base if the base is occupied?

You can no longer fake a throw to third base from a pitching position at any time. Third base is now treated the same as first base. The rule change eliminates the "third to first" move, but the throw to any base after a feint to third base is irrelevant as the feint to third is what created the balk. This rule change is consistent with professional baseball also.
